1951 Live TV-Commercial for Carnation Evaporated Milk (Upload 1)

Published 1951

Another classic 1950s commercial, this time for Carnation Evaporated Milk. As some of you may have guessed, it is from the "Burns and Allen" show, which typically used an unusual advertising system: Two brief plugs at the start and finish of each 30 minute episode, and one long, often 3-minute commercial mid-way through the program. The commercial aired live, presumably in 1951 (I am having trouble with the episode title), and recorded via Kinescope. This is the first of several uploads I'm making of these fun commercials.
